Ban the R-word : Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar, who is the brand ambassador for Special Olympics for mentally and physically challenged individuals, wants a ban on the use of the word ‘retard’ while referring to such people. The word ‘retard’ has derogatory connotation.

“Many of you know that I am campaigning to ban the word 'Retard'. I cannot tell you how supportive our industry is,” Akshay wrote on Twitter.

Akshay has already convinced mega star Amitabh Bachchan to do a TV byte to support his campaign.

“Akshay desired that I do a small TV bite stating how we must never refer to disabled children in their disability and call them 'Retarded'. Instead they needed to be treated and handled with care and understanding, teaching them to stand on their own feet. I felt good,” Bachchan wrote on his blog.

Not just Big B, other stars and celebs like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Farah Khan have come forward to endorse Akshay’s cause.

“Mr Bachchan, Salman, Katrina, Sajid and Farah all pledged on camera to help and show respect to our fellow Indians who have special needs. It is really great when our fraternity comes together like this,” Akshay wrote on the micro-blogging site.

The 43-year-old actor is presently shooting the film Tees Maar Khan with Farah Khan.
